Child Dedication

Child Dedication

Sign up by July 18

A Child Dedication service is an opportunity for parents to publicly declare their intent to raise their child in a way that honors God and also give the child the opportunity to eventually have a personal relationship with Jesus. In many ways a "child dedication" service is truly a "parent dedication" service, as parents publicly declare to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his own personal confession of Christ.

Entitlement Fix

There has never been a time in American history when children had so much but were expected to do so little to get it. Research says narcissism has tripled in three generations. To counteract this trend, you need insight into what’s going on underneath the self-centered attitudes. What are the subtle cultural messages shaping your child’s beliefs? How might your parenting be unintentionally contributing to this sense of entitlement? What you can do to change the momentum? In this workshop you will learn practical Biblical principles to cultivate a family culture of responsibility, gratitude and service.
Target audience: Parents of kids ages 2 to 18
